I am so happy that we discovered Izzy & Ferd. The collection launched this year and it is gooood! What kid wouldn't enjoy wearing sharks on their pants?! Adorable city over here! Designed and manufactured in L.A., every piece is constructed to be extremely durable and machine washable. The quality of the fabric is amazing - super soft to the touch and I am kind of jealous Lucas's tunic doesn't come in mama size. Shop the entire F/W 20,000 Leagues collection here. And in case you have trouble deciding on what to choose, here are a few of my faves: 1, 2, 3. Happy shopping!

Red. Check! Polka dots. Check! Sometimes Lucas and I like to match - no judgment please :). How adorable is his new tee from Kid & Kind? It's called the "happy little guy" tee. So very fitting for my boy! His sweats are from boy + girl (see details here!). My dress is from The Freebird Shop and you can see more of this look over on Babiekins. xx

A few snapshots of my favorite corners in our new apartment. Three months later is still considered new, right? Because the decorating/curating process has taken so much longer than I could have ever imagined! I have been trying to be extremely thoughtful and take my time with these oh so important decisions ;). The things I love most in our home are the pieces that have been handed down to us from family, especially the photographs which I can't get enough of. I have also been going washi tape crazy. If anyone has a better solution to hang polaroids please let a mama know. Although I have to admit I'm quite liking my crazy black and white tape situation. It makes for an easy move when I want to switch things up a bit. Anywho, will be sharing more soon!

We had the perfect weekend, my boys and I. Saturday morning we took a walk around the neighborhood and wound up at T-Mobile where my guy pre-purchased the new iPhone for me (my birthday is in less than 2 weeks! hurrah!) and came back home for a quick nap. I then had a few hours to myself - Ivan took Lucas to his first Yankee game. I bragged to a few friends that I had a few hours of alone time to CLEAN. I mean. What is the world coming to ;) Sunday we had a low key morning and decided to head out right before Lucas's nap and walk over to our friends up in Spanish Harlem for wings and football. The weather was a dream and Lucas snoozed the entire time. We just received the Quad from Inglesina and we are officially spoiled. It is the perfect ride. The steering is magical (yes, a stroller can be magical) and it was such a treat pushing his new set of wheels as opposed to his usual umbrella stroller where I (Lucas) can feel every city bump. We were also invited to participate in Inglesina's #strollersofnewyork series and I can't wait to share more about that in October!

No matter where life takes me, one thing is for certain. I am a mother. Lucas's mother. It is the most fulfilling, rewarding, crazy, hectic, heart warming job in the world. He is my greatest achievement and when someone asks me "what do you do" my first response is - I am a MOM. I kinda wish I could rock this tee everyday. It made me feel all "I am mama, hear me roar!". I loved all the smiles I received while walking hand in hand with Lucas. Thank you Riley & Co for creating the perfect tee for this Madre. On Lucas: hat c/o sly fox Threads | sweater from uniglo | leggings c/o lot 801 | sneakers from walmart
Is it boot season already? I many have jumped the gun but who gives a hoot when your kid looks so stinking cute in them! I'll take a pair in my size please ;) The weather this September hasn't disappointed. Sunny days with a slight chill and breezy evenings. No need for the AC at night makes me a very happy lady. I've even slowly started giving up my iced coffees and in their place I've been drinking a nice, warm mug of café con leche. YES.Boot weather also calls for coordinating cozy threads and No Sweet Kids is one of my very favorites. You can see more photos and learn more about this amazing company over on Babiekins.
